I was trying to remember what FCA/PSA’s new merged name, Stellantis, was reminding me of (other than. a psoriasis drug that has side effects that include Rhythmic Tongue Motion and Rapid Navel Inversion Syndrome) and it finally hit me: the Autobianchi Stellina! Stellantis just sounds like the third person plural if you conjugate Stellina.

Stellantis just sounds like the third person plural if you conjugate Stellina.
They sound like they could be Latin, so Stellina would be the plural and Stellantis would be singular.
Does one “conjugate” a noun?
